Ultimate Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Well, we're a little late to the party but maybe that's fashionable? What am I saying? This is the Offering Hospitality blog wherein we talk about the do's and don't of - well - offering (and accepting!) hospitality, right? One of the main rules about being a guest is showing up on time, right? Isn't that so? Well, we do our best around here but we're not perfect.

We're a relatively new blog and this is our purpose:

To will feature tips, stories, encouragement, and a Christian perspective of hospitality and how we can better apply this concept to our lives in the busy era we live in.

We love to interact with others and share thoughts and ideas. We hope you'll browse our site and consider sharing this challenging journey with us wherein we're stretched a tad beyond our comfort zones and encouraged to find ways to bless others.

Here are some of our initial posts to give you an idea of what we're about:

- Defining Offering Hospitality

- Learning to be hospitable without complaint

Thank you for stopping by and we look forward to getting to know you!

  14. I'm stopping by from the UBP. It is nice to meet you! I would love to hear what you are going to add to your site. With 5 children and homeschooling, I always feel my house is a little too "lived in" to feel I should practice hospitality. I'd love to be inspired, though.
